Construction to widen Route 58 from near Watauga Road in Abingdon to just east of Route 638 (Lacy Drive) was completed fall 2012.
In May 2010 The Commonwealth Transportation Board approved construction of Phase II of the Route 58 widening between Abingdon and Damascus.
The contract was awarded to DLB, Inc., Hillsville, and includes the widening of Route 58 from near Watauga Road in Abingdon to just east of Route 638 (Lacy Drive). The project also includes replacement of the bridge over Middle Fork Holston River.
The project was funded using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act dollars.
Two additional widening projects for Route 58 between Abingdon to Damascus remain:
- Route 708 (Rhea Valley) to just east of Route 638 (Lacy Drive): Construction is slated to begin in early 2013.
- West Corporate Limits of Damascus to near Route 708 - Rhea Valley: Right of way and construction are contingent on future funding.
